Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Special Holiday favor: best of 65-73; again!

EDIT: sorry for the bump, but have to do this again this year! Any new suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Hey guys (and my new web sweetie, Ms. Divine): making a Holiday Collection gift, consisting of single disk wonders, complete/partial shows, one from each year, 65-73.

So, what I am looking for is a single disk for each year. EG, 10-12-68 is perfect since it is a single show, single disk. And another might be 9-19-70. But, you decide--I know you're thinking, "WTF? this is HIS frickin era, let him do the work!" but I really want your votes.

Please provide your fav from each yr, with the constraint being it has to be a single disk. I especially need help with 71-73 (ie, for those, need a recommendation of "disk 2, XX-XX-73" or some such). I don't want to do "greatest hits" so don't tell me, "tr 1, disk 1, show X, and then tr 8, disk 2, show Y, etc", but rather, "disk 2, show X, period" or similar.

OK?

Thanks all--and as Lobster says: Happy Holidays!

Hi WT,

Dick's Picks 2 is the obvious choice for 1971. Best ever type versions of Dark Star, St Steve, and NFA > GDTRFB.

9-19 is a fine choice for 1970, but I prefer 6-24. The electric set fits nicely on a single disc. It is, of course, and AUD recording, but the notes are as clear as they need to be.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1970-06-24.aud.lee.5339.sbeok.shnf

For 1973, I have to believe disc 3 from DP 19 suits your project well. Could be the best music of the year.

I'll concur with Death&Mercy on DP#2 for 1971!

For 1973, you will be hard pressed to find a better disc than Disc 5 of the Winterland Box from 11/10/73...

WRS-> Playin'-> UJB-> Morning Dew-> UJB-> Playin'

This hour of music 1s as good as any the band has ever released!

William Tell, this is horribly difficult because each disc (audio I presume) can only hold ~70 minutes of music. And what makes the Dead special is their long jams that last > 30 minutes! So how do we find one 70 minute chunk from those years?

And just curious...why not 74? That is kind of a logical stopping point for the Dead, since it's last year of single drummer, the take a 18 month hiatus, etc.

But...I love doing this shit! Here are my votes. I will try to give you chunks of music *under 70 minutes*. Of your year bracket, I know 73 best, then 72. Before that I'm weak.

In no particular order:

1973-11-11 - Winterland
Dark Star > MLB Jam > Eyes > China Doll, Sugar Magnolia
Time: 65 minutes

1973-05-26 - Kezar
Mississippi, Me And My Uncle, Truckin' > TOO > Eyes > China, Sugar Mags
Time: 71 minutes
This is basically the 3 set minus He's Gone.

1973-03-28 - Springfield
Dark Star > Eyes > Playin, Johnny B. Goode
Time: 65 minutes

1973-06-22 - PNE Coliseum
China > Rider, Playin, He's Gone > Truckin'
Time: 71 minutes
Truckin' is particularly nasty good. Bob goes crazy in China!

1973-11-21 - Denver
Playin > El Paso > Playin' > Wharf Rat > Playin' > Dew, Truckin' > Nobody's Fault > GDTRBF
Time: 73 minutes
might be a little long for a CD...but this is solid if it works.

1973-11-30 - Boston, DP 14 Second CD!
Sunshine, WRS > Let It Grow > DS > Eyes > Sugar Mags
Time: 65 mins

1973-12-02 - Boston, DP 14 Second CD!
Playin > MLB Jam > He's Gone > Truckin' > Stella Blue > Morning Dew
Time: 76 mins

***************************************************

1972-04-08 - Wembley
LLR, BRB, It Hurts Me Too, Dark Star > Sugar Mag, Caution
Time: 74 mins
Most of this was released on Steppin Out: England 72, LLR has Jerry on Steel pedal!

1972-04-26 - Rhinehalle (Rockin' The Rhine)
ANYTHING here suffices. I feel very strong in my belief that this rivals the best official recordings ever releasd by the Dead.

1972-05-16 - Luxemborg Radio
Entire second set and encore
Total Length: 69 mins.
Fantastic quality!

And going forward in 1972...you can mix and match songs from just about any great show, including
8/21
8/24
8/27
9/17 (DP 23)
9/21 (DP 36)
9/24
9/27 (DP 11)

There is a reason why Latvala released three DP's within a few weeks. That september run was extraordinary!

Lastly... a Top 5 from 1972
1972-12-31 - Winterland
Big River, Truckin' > TOO > Drums > TOO > Dew
Time: 73 mins

Good luck! Sounds like a ton of fun.

Whoa! Great work SM! I actually have decided NOT to do the same sequence for different people (hope they appreciate these gifts!), so will be able to vary the exact set of shows and as you note--it is GREAT FUN!

Yeah, the early years have these one disk wonders regularly, and it was just sort of anal retentive simplicity to constrain it to "one show, one disk, one year" if you follow...

10-12-68, clocks in at 79 min! Whewww...12-29-68 makes it too, and then the last portion of 9-19-70. You get the idea. 9-16-66, etc.

But, not the same for post 70, generally (ie, that we have a one disk wonder to begin with, much less that many rank it "number 1" or close for the yr.

Finally, just went with 65-73 to parallel the Golden Road boxed set I suppose...? Not sure!

I think the Thai's going nuts over there is awesome. Why don't we do that? Ever see the South Koreans out in the streets protesting - knocking heads down on Main Street? Holy Crap! Even a lot of the Europeans - especially the farmers - go bonkers in the streets now and then to defend there way of life. Perhaps the least we could do is have an effective national strike, draw a line in the sand, and take a stand. Bring the fat cats to their knees financially - and for real - where they belong. Make the bastards beg us to come back into the fold. Why not demand they get behind a decent way of life? Take to the streets and protest en-mass?

Earl, your passion for the bunker mentality is remarkable. I'm thinkin' the same thing, but isn't that the epitomy of divide and conquer? Don't we lose? Is that what we want? I'm proud to be someone who opens people's minds sometimes. My PR skills are way too edgy. So what if they suck? Lots of us don't like stuff we're seeing when we take a good look in our mirror. When I look I'm thinking, what if I were a kid right now? Of course I remind myself I'm thankful for my situation, but I'm hurting a lot too. So here's my pick of picks:

Grateful Dead - SBD
Kresge Plaza, M.I.T.
Cambridge, Massachusetts
May 6, 1970 - Wednesday

Disc 1
46:48

1. Dancin' In The Streets
2. China Cat Sunflower >
3. I Know You Rider
4. Next Time You See
5. Morning Dew

Disc 2
41:23

1. Good Lovin'
2. Casey Jones
3. Saint Stephen >
4. Not Fade Away

Free concert - nationwide campus strikes to protest Kent State killings

Everyone was coming unglued - all across our country! College campuses erupted nationwide right after the Kent State massacre. I'm proud as a peacock my favorite band was at the epicenter of The Movement, regardless of what Jerry never said about politics or Vietnam. And what band played at Woodstock and Watkins Glen? Looking back, people started burning their draft cards in 1965 at UC Berkeley at a teach-in attended by 30,000.

This famous and timeless "Hippie Temptation" film clip on You Tube immortalizes The Boys in 1967. Phil sums it up in the piece, "The scene has grown up with us, and we have grown up with the scene. We've both grown up together." Me too. Jer and Bob quotes from this clip also bear repeating. Jer - "A peaceful planet... We just want a simple life, a good life. Move the planet ahead a step." Bob - "people in our neighborhood smoking dope don't have wars."

It was freezing outside for this thriller show - especially if you're in the band and playing. Imagine moving your ice-cold fingers around your axe - picking strings and forming chords - cleanly? It's amazing what was played. Not so easy when it's a chilly spring day in the low-to-mid 40s. Even playing drums was surely challenging. Just clinging onto the drumsticks would have been tricky. Why can't we do something this courageous and selfless, for a righteous cause? Like how about demanding the rights to our future? So we can proudly pass it along. Why not let everyone share its glory?

This show forever demonstrates to me the naked core spirit and values of The Grateful Dead band at the very peak of their initial maturation. To me, BY FAR, this was their best angle EVER over their 30-year career. I'm claiming that The Dead were arguably the kings of the counter-culture movement during the latter half of the 20th Century - but for perhaps Dr. Martin Luther King, John Lennon, and Pete Seeger. Their music, songs, lyrics, style, sound system, moods, setlists, artform, performances, free shows, improvisational risk-taking, precedent-setting jams, spontaneity, recording, taper policies, and INTENT were all based on this thesis. I was so pissed off about that Deadheads for Obama thing. WTF? Just take the sign down, damnit. Play all you want.

As for listening to this show -- it's a great show to have. It's a moving and historic performance. The LMA streaming files are corrupted. It doesn't stream for me. Maybe Matt Vernon and his volunteers can straighten this out. Here is this show on The Archive.

Here is the bit torrent at bt-etree.

Just got my "permit" finally. Did something decent without fucking it up. Proud of myself. Self-preservation. I was hurting. Pretty bad shape after intermittent weeks of zilch. Been going on for quite awhile. Not anymore. Plus, I'm legit now. Just like people were doing thousands of years ago. And Michigan just joined the brotherhood. They jumped into the fray a couple of weeks back. Welcome brothers and sisters to our 13-state nation. Massachusetts gets a mentionable high-5 for becoming the 39th place to draw down.

I got on The_Bus at bt-etree. Remarkable projects are seeding year-by-year. The earlier and best years first. Every Dead tape that ever circulated is going out. Cherry-picking on steroids for anyone stopping by. Energizer-bunny mode. All legit by The Boys' trade-friendly policies.

Don't know what else to say - whatever - - - guess I'm a jerkweed. I'm sorry. No excuses. I'm an idiot sometimes. Sometimes I say stuff I shouldn't say, or do stuff in a way I shouldn't do it. Yes, I regret it. My bad.

He Live's, looks like you've got some company from this new guy. I can't go where you guys go. I am humbled. Also, you and Liam - that 79-12-28 is a stellar show for the ages. It's easy for me to speak to the club tunes played. Mexicali Blues drives as well as I ever heard them play my favorite polka. I don't give a shit if this tune didn't win the cowboy tune poll over at LL. It's All Over Now is so fucking nailed here - some of the best pure polish I ever heard The Boys belt out. It shoulda been #1 on every rock radio station for 6 months. The Sugaree opener gets high praise. Bob gets a wee-bit slide crazy though. Hunter Seamon's matrix gives this beauty of a show all its glory.

I'm already emotionally gone. Look at Arb - there's a guy under control. BD, maybe you can chime in on the counter-culture. From your insider in-the-know angle. Cliff, "that pic" is not a tractor. It's a vacuum cleaner - as in sucking up the internet around here. The ride says Hoover on the damn thing, not John Deere. Just me saying, "get it while the getting is good." Speaking out in defense of Net Neutrality. NC, don't blame me cause you were saying so much. At least you give a shit. I'm proud of you for taking a stand. I admire that. We disagree on many points. GC says so well what I've been trying to say around here. Stealz, sorry about your loss.

The Dead completely changed my life. And they've come back to haunt me. Is it worth the risk-taking of posting here? Bfd. Sharing about these boys is good therapy for everyone. Vote me off here, and I'll go - whether it's censorship and/or my poop stinking. It's most important, I believe, that the message comes out and stays alive. I waited over a month to say this. I can wait again, longer than that.

Happy Thanksgiving out there to all the DeadHeads. It's not too late to act. Peace everyone.

WT:
...Buddie, I don't follow directions too well so I apologize for screwing-up your request. All I know is that "Bird Song" from 8/27/1972 is a "must-have" for any collection. "Dark Star > El Paso > Sing Me Back Home" may help create a complete disc ....anyways, I apologize if I didn't understand your request, however there is "something" about this version of "Bird Song" that goes directly to that certain inner space where only Jerry/Hunter/and the "Grateful Dead" bring me (via music and lyrics). As for the other tunes, they may not be the best versions, however I put them here just in case you are looking for additional tunes from the same show to help create a complete disc.

WT, I hope you and your family are doing well --- or, at least as well as can be expected in the insane experience called "Life." ...friggin' insane experience that is relentless, hey(?)

PS: Who is "Ms. Divine?" ...intriguing name ....especially for the unwashed, non-Divine ones such as myself.

You said it--just when I figured we'd had our run of tough times, the Tell Clan found new ways to keep "Life" interesting. Nonetheless, been finding some solace here, and of late, we forumites have ALL missed your gentle touch. So great to have you back for as long as you're able.

Bird Song indeed seems a must. I will examine 8-24 and 8-27 and see what I can do with those two shows. Close enough to make a single show disk, I reckon. [That was all I was getting at--giving a "single great show" per year, that fit on one disk...tough for that last part of course, except, again, for shows like our beloved 10-12-68 and the like (12-29-68 is another one)]

Ms Divine could be the Calliope Woman, or she could be a ruse, or who knows what, but taken at face value, she is what she seems--the only feminine influence here abouts these days. She and I have shared some musical favorites, so something binds us...well, in fact, it's pretty one sided thus far, but that's the way of web relationships, especially with one as an old and worn out refugee like me.

You take care friend, and keep in touch...

Don't know if this helps or not.It's not really a single-disc kind of thing, I don't think, but if you have a disc from 2-15-73,that would be my choice for that year.If this is on any DP or something like that,that's my recommendation.Awesome show! I know this link is streaming only,but it gives you an idea of what the show is all about.

Hey PP--did you know that the 11 on this date is one of the all time best? And the boys are so synchronized, so tight in the opening jam on LL it makes my hair stand on end.

A really outstanding choice for 69! You have a great thanksgiving, dude.

hey tell, this is a bit late and may or may not have been suggested, but 2-19-73 is a solid single disk contender with He's Gone > Truckin' > Other One > Eyes > China Doll, Sugar Magnolia. Casey Jones is on the tape too but wont fit so could be interchangeable with the tune of your choice but i would leave caseu jones out :)

Thanks jds! I appreciate you taking the time, as a limited poster so to speak, to chime in.

And thanks to all the others; will mull them all over, esp in light of what I have available.

Hope the family and friends aren't getting tired of these sorts of gifts; I'll change things up with some CREAM this yr of course!

The New "Vintage Dead/Historic Dead" board that is up (from the esteemed Mr. Davenport) is one disc, and it's the best of the early era, IMHO.
